I usually check how conversion is going every 15 minutes with a refractometer and typically it's at least 70% after the first 15. The remaining 30% can take much longer. If you don't do a mash out...

If you counted an average of 120 cells per one of the 25 grids, you also need to multiply by 25. All 25 grids together are 1/10,000 of a mL.

I contacted Duda Diesel about the cracking pressure of their check valves since I'm looking for some too.
They replied:
"Its too low for us to measure. I can blow them open with my lungs (1-3 psi)"

That was my favorite there as well. I've had some of their stuff here in philly and wanted to try their hoppy beer fresh. I think my expectations were too high but it was still good.
